Turf wars. Violent betrayals. A family torn apart by greed and jealousy. That's the life of Rikki Ortega (Jon Seda), a hardened man who wants to rule the gang-ravaged streets of East Los Angeles -- and he'll stop at nothing to control it all. The only man resourceful enough to take on Rikki is Juan Vallejo (Mario Lopez), a cop from the neighborhood … and Rikki's childhood friend.
